An .htaccess file is a text file which features directives which tell a web server how to behave in particular situations. It should be placed in the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to work efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use this kind of a file with custom content as well and do a lot of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific websites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages that shall show up instead of the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you will have significantly better control over your online presence.
